What is the HCC Philosophy of Advising?

Henderson Community College academic advising empowers students to become responsible for their own academic success. Faculty advisors are committed to providing accurate and comprehensive academic advising. Working together, students and advisors develop one-on-one relationships and share responsibility to assist students to make choices and define goals; guide students through administrative processes; connect students to campus services and resources; and encourage the intellectual growth of students.

What is the Second Tier Advising Syllabus?

HCC began using the Second Tier Advising Syllabus in spring 2014. This syllabus is specific to each program and will be completed by the student and his or her assigned academic advisor and used as a path for student success. This syllabus is divided into areas such as academic goals, career goals, advising goals, and program goals, students need to complete based on the number of credit hours earned at the college.

What are the advisee's (student's) responsibilities?
